INS and DEL elements

Just a quick reminder to all the authors out there – the INS and DEL elements are there for a reason. Tantek‘s podcast taught me this, hopefully this post can impact others. Specs say:

INS and DEL are used to markup sections of the document that have been inserted or deleted with respect to a different version of a document (e.g., in draft legislation where lawmakers need to view the changes).

So, if you edit an article an insert content, use the INS element. If you decide to delete content, use DEL and let the users know exactly what changes happened in the document.
